Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus

The Alumni Relations Team has had an exciting and busy start to 2016 – having interacted with many graduates via personal visits, emails, written and telephonic communication as well as through the various social media sites. The Durban Alumni Association AGM and the Cape Town Alumnus Dinner took place and a number of other events will soon be taking place. Such events include the Durban Alumnus Dinner, the Richards Bay Alumnus Lunch, a Pietermaritzburg Alumnus event, a film screening/movie evening in Durban and visits to Swaziland, Mpumalanga, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom are also on the agenda.

We are particularly happy about the successful launch of two new Facebook Groups – specifically for alumni based in the United Kingdom and the USA. We plan to launch similar Facebook groups specifically for those alumni living in Canada, Australia and New Zealand in the near future. If you live in the USA or UK and are interested in joining any of these Facebook groups, please contact Desiree Govender for more information: or

Communication via the website, FacebookTwitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. You can also connect with us on LinkedIn. In order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile phone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via the website

With our very best wishes, 
The Alumni Relations Team.
